198X Olivetti Linea 98 Serial # 3940951 198X Olivetti Linea 98 typewriter, Serial # 3940951 Milan Berta's 198X Olivetti Linea 98 typewriter. 2021-05-06 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Milan Berta: 198X Olivetti Linea 98 Serial # 3940951 This typewriter got to me by mistake. I had to take it as part of buying another machine. Fortunately for free. I should have handed him over for scrap. Although I'm not interested in these relatively new typewriters, I decided to give it a new chance. After many hours of cleaning, its beauty has been restored. Excellent, fully functional machine in perfect condition. I believe he will serve someone for many years. Made in Brazil. Slovak keyboard.

Historical typewriters, cameras, sewing machines, ... - all beautiful things, that work only on the basis of human skill and ability. Therefore, they deserve our attention and respect. I do not want to let those inventions that pushed us forward much faster than we were prepared, them disappear in this way.

Lives in Michalovce, Slovakia. Proud father of two children. Started collecting in March 2020. More a hunter than a collector or restorer. But determined to change it and bring the machines to a new life. Thank you in advance for any of your advice and help. (English is not my strong side, so I use Uncle Google's help. Correct me anytime).
